Amsterdam City Bike Tour

Take a bike tour to experience Amsterdam the way the locals do!

ABOUT THE Amsterdam City Bike Tour

There's only one way to see Amsterdam, and that's to see it as the locals do - on a bike! On this 2-hour city bike tour you will cycle along the canals, ride down the side streets and see both the major landmarks and hidden gems of Amsterdam!


Your 2-hour Amsterdam Bike Tour meets at the Chinese Restaurant Sea Palace, Oosterdokskade 8.


The preferred method of transport for locals

You only need to be in Amsterdam for two minutes to discover that all the locals use their bikes to get around. On the Amsterdam Bike Tour, you'll cycle around like a local while seeing some of the city's major sites, and some you might not discover yourself.

Major sites and local favorites

On this Amsterdam bike tour, you'll of course see some of the city's major landmarks like the Rijksmuseum, the Heineken Brewery and the iAmsterdam sign, but your expert local guide will also take you to some of their favorite sites, including the Vondelpark and the NEMO Science Museum - you might even get to see a windmill or two! But be sure to bring your camera as you ride along picture-perfect canals and streets. Had enough of the Amsterdam city center? Check out our Countryside Bike Tour!
